My Students

Our school is in a town of less than twenty thousand and all of our students get free lunch. Our district has a great technology center where my kids have learned valuable skills in construction, auto tech, welding and more.

My students are great kids that happen to have learning difficulties.

As students with special needs, all of my kids have learning gaps. They all need individualized instruction to close the gap between where they are and where they need to be academically. Please help them continue to close their academic gaps so they will be ready for college and careers after graduation!

My Project

My school has an increasing number of students from immigrant families. The vast majority of them speak Spanish at home and are from Mexico or countries further south in Central America. Unfortunately, I have no books in my classroom that help these students see themselves in the curriculum.

It is important that these students have books to read that reflect their life experiences.

These novels will open discussion between students from immigrant families and students who have never been out of our rural county.

Many of the non-Hispanic students in my classroom have little empathy for immigrants due to limited experiences. Exposing these students to good literature about immigration will help them see immigrants as real people who matter. The novels I have requested will help bridge the divide between Hispanic​ and non-Hispanic students in my classroom.
